Photo contest

I am happy to announce that the annual photo contest in memory of Amit Geffen that I am coordinating started rolling today. It is the main bird photography contest in Israel, and each year its level is getting higher.
Amit Geffen was a dear friend who passed away tragically in 2007 at the age of 21. He was a fantastic birder and a very skilled photographer. In those days most of us did digiscoping, and Amit achieved impressive results with his digiscoping kit. This photo contest in his memory helps us promote conservation in Israel.
Unfortunately for all the international readers, at the moment the contest is open to Israeli photgraphers only; but I hope that in the near future we will be able to organize an international contest.
Full details on the contest (in Hebrew :-( ) appear in the SPNI website.
I will keep you posted when we have the winning images selected.
